Mission experts for NASA’s #Artemis I mission around the Moon go over the details and mission timeline—from pre-launch to splashdown—of the four-to-six-week flight test that will demonstrate the capabilities of the Space Launch System (SLS) Moon rocket and Orion capsule. Briefing participants:

• Debbie Korth, Orion program deputy manager, NASA Johnson

• Judd Frieling, Artemis I ascent/entry flight director, NASA Johnson
• Melissa Jones, Artemis I recovery director, NASA Kennedy

Currently targeted to launch no earlier than Monday, Aug. 29, the SLS rocket will send the uncrewed Orion spacecraft around the Moon and back to Earth to check out spacecraft systems before crew fly aboard on Artemis II. The Artemis I mission is one more step toward taking the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars.
